Court: Rahm Emanuel Ineligible to Run for Chicago Mayor

Updated 1:53 p.m.
Rahm Emanuel has not met Chicago residency requirements and is ineligible to appear on the Feb. 22 mayoral ballot, an Illinois appeals court ruled Monday.

In the 25-page ruling, the appeals court overturned a Chicago Board of Elections decision that deemed the former White House chief of staff eligible to run for mayor of the city he has long called home.

Emanuel is the frontrunner in the race to replace retiring Mayor Richard M. Daley.
